Poster indicating the name, location and date of the activity.

In the framework of AL4 Multilingual and Multicultural University, chaired by Leipzig University, Professor Waldemar Martyniuk will present, on 28th October, a lecture on European Multilingualism Policy AD 2021.

The European Multilingualism Policy is shaped on the intergovernmental level by two major organisations: the Council of Europe and the European Union. At least since 2001, the European Year of Languages celebrated jointly by the two organisations, policies promoted by them seem to demonstrate a steadily growing level of agreement and complementarity. Waldemar Martyniuk is a Professor at the Institute of Polish Language and Culture for Foreigners of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. In his lecture on October 28th, he is reviewing two documents published quite recently – the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment – Companion volume 2020 by the Council of Europe and the Recommendation of 22 May 2019 on a comprehensive approach to the teaching and learning of languages by the Council of the European Union.

Mr Martyniuk contributes his European perspective through his experience as responsible for the activities in the field of the Council of Europe. He provides an important stimulus to the discussion of a language policy for the Arqus Alliance.

When: 28th October 2021, 7 pm-8:30 pm (CEST).

Where: The lecture will be structured as a hybrid event, with a live event at the Felix Klein Hörsaal building of the Leipzig University and a live broadcast on YouTube.
